Abstract

Photon correlation studies of light scattered by a dense disordered medium at and around the backscatter direction reveal a polarization dependence of the correlation function. This is related to the polarization dependence of the mean intensity of the enhanced backscatter associated with coherent cooperative effects in such media.
